With the news of the first Pope to resign in 600 years,
and a very busy week ahead,
it seemed appropriate to take a very short trip to Rome,
specifically the Vatican, this Travelin' Tuesday.
Here are just a few shots of the beauty of the place.
So many saints,
so little time.
And a view from the top.
While not a Catholic or a Pope-follower,
it is always fascinating when history is made.
And soon excitement will ensue while Rome and the world
await smoke signals.
I promise to be back with more French news next week
but enjoy these travel photos until then.
